4/5; 4 stars; A- I recently re-read this book and had completely forgotten the 'revenge plot' angle. Normally this is a trope I don't like in a book but Kleypas handled it beautifully. She did such a great job of creating the characters of Sophia and Sir Ross and developing their relationship that the revenge plot did not become an annoying hindrance to the progress of the story line. Instead, the way it was handled served to demonstrate positive things about these two characters. Its hard not to love both main characters in this book.
